Captain Christopher Del Gandio has made history as the first out gay man to make that rank with the San Francisco Police Department.

He is also currently the highest-ranking out LGBTQ police officer in the department. Former police commander Teresa Ewins, a lesbian who had served with SFPD for 26 years, had that distinction until she left last year to become chief of police in Lincoln, Nebraska.

At the moment the highest-ranking LGBTQ person in the department is Matt Dorsey, a gay civilian who is director of strategic communications and part of SFPD Chief William Scott's command staff.
